Running TestLogServer
Topic 50331 | Websense Web Security Solutions | Version 7.7, 7.8 | Updated 19-Sept-2013
In order to screen log traffic with TestLogServer without interrupting the flow of log records to Log Server, first launch the utility using parameters that forward all traffic to Log Server, then use TRITON - Web Security to configure Filtering Service to pass log traffic to TestLogServer.
On Log Server machine, open a command prompt (Start > Run > cmd) and navigate to the Websense bin directory (C:\Program Files or Program Files (x86)\Websense\Web Security\bin, by default).
testlogserver -port 5555 -forward <IP address>:55805
-file <filename.txt>
-onlyip <IP address>
The first parameter allows you to redirect traffic to a file for review, rather than having it scroll rapidly across the console. The file is created by default in the Websense bin directory.
The second parameter allows you to monitor traffic only from the IP address specified.
Initially, when the utility launches, no traffic appears. Now you can redirect traffic to TestLogServer.
Log on to TRITON - Web Security, and navigate to the Settings > General > Logging page.
Change the port to 5555 (or the value you've selected).
Click Check Status to verify the connection to TestLogServer.
Click OK and then Save and Deploy.
When you are finished, first return to the Settings > General > Logging screen in TRITON - Web Security, and change the logging port back to its original value (55805, by default). Remember to click OK and Save and Deploy to cache and then implement your change.
At this point, traffic is sent directly to Log Server and stops appearing in TestLogServer.
